Tony Winner Julie White Transforms Herself

Tony Winner Julie White Transforms Herself

The other day while taking one of my pre-teen relatives to see the summer action flick "Transformers" (sigh!), I was relieved to see a friendly theatre face up there on the big screen: Julie White, a larger than life actress if there ever was one.

Just for the record, she was one of few bright spots in the otherwise overblown movie, which was nothing more than a long commercial for a certain automobile and truck manufacturer. The non-stop product placements reminded me of yet another reason why I prefer the live theatre experience -- I'll gladly take The Little Dog Laughed over the drivel I had to endure the other day.

What's ahead for the very recent Tony winner?

Well, it's almost as if she was asked, "Ms. White, now that you've won the Tony, what are you going to do?" She is, of course, heading to Disney: that is, ABC television.

White is foregoing additional stage work in the foreseeable future to take on the role of Leslie in the upcoming commercial-cum-television show "Cavemen." However, it must not be a primary character since she's not even listed among the cast members on the official ABC programming Web site.

Here's hoping we'll see more of this tremendously gifted actress, albeit in better vehicles, sooner than later.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Well maybe I'll rent it when it comes out on DVD and fast-forward to Julie White's part. Or maybe not! Anyway, I hope your young relative enjoyed it at least. And Steve, you're a very good sport!

I believe my young relative described the movie as "Awesome!" So there was that! Incidentally, for anyone venturing into the movie theatre to see this flick, make sure you hang out for the final credits - that's when some of Julie White's best lines are delivered. Glad they weren't wasted on the cutting room floor.
